Title : Journey of nanotechnology in polymer electrolytes for rechargeable lithium batteries
The capacity and energy density of conventional lithium-ion batteries have reached their limits. High-energy batteries can be made possible by using lithium metal anodes. But in order to avoid safety risks and lithium dendrite growth, safe electrolytes must take the place of flammable liquid ones. One of the most practical ways to create safer and energy-dense electrochemical energy storage systems is to switch from traditional liquid electrolytes to polymer electrolytes (PEs) which are desired for applications in e-mobility (e.g., electric vehicles). Organic-inorganic hybrid nanomaterials have attracted increasing attention in recent years, with the goal of combining the benefits of both organic and inorganic phases. With full consideration given to the impact of inorganic and organic phases on the physical and chemical properties of the electrolytes, I will concentrate on the development and most recent advancements in PEs comprising nano-sized inorganic materials and hybrid nanoparticles in this talk. I emphasize the paradigm shift from composite polymer electrolytes (CPEs, made by physical blending) to hybrid polymer electrolytes (HPEs, made by chemical grafting), and I address potential advancements and future possibilities for both CPEs and HPEs.
